SC upholds Tahrir leader’s bail order

Star Online Report

The Supreme Court on Wednesday upheld a High Court order that granted a six-month bail to Hizb ut-Tahrir leader Prof Syed Golam Mawla, also a Dhaka University teacher, in a case filed for allegedly coordinating the activities of the banned outfit.

Chamber Judge of the Appellate Division Justice MA Wahab Miah passed the order after rejecting a petition filed by the government seeking a stay on the HC order.

Advocate Mansur Habib, a counsel for Golam Mawla, told The Daily Star that there is no legal bar to his client’s release from jail following the apex court order.

Police filed a case on March 2, 2010 with Uttara Police Station against Golam Mawla, a senior adviser of the outfit and an associate professor of Dhaka University, on charge of organising Hizb ut-Tahrir activists for overthrowing the government.

The law enforcer arrested him from his Dhanmondi residence on July 7, 2010.

The HC on July 23 this year granted him bail for six months in this case. The government on Tuesday filed a petition with the SC seeking a stay on the HC order.

Golam Mawla is now at Kashimpur Jail.
